Continuing what has been quite a licensing spree for them, Sentai Filmworks has also announced that they have acquired the license to the 2013 anime series, Makai Ōji: Devils and Realist, only they will be simply calling it Devils and Realist once they give the series an eventual home release and digital release sometime in the future.
Originally animated by Dogakobo, Sentai Filmworks describes the story of Devils and Realist in a synopsis:
William Twining leads the perfect life of an aristocratic noble: he’s handsome, wealthy, intelligent, and takes great pride in his family’s lineage, all while dreaming of his future in high society. After his wealthy uncle goes bankrupt from bad investments, William worries about losing his good name. When he’s told his tuition has yet to be paid at the prestigious Stradford School, he quickly rushes to his estate – only to find that the debt collectors have taken everything and his uncle is missing.
Struggling to find a way to pay for school, William stumbles upon a mysterious room where he accidentally summons Dantalion, Grand Duke of the 36 Armies of Hell. Being a hard-line realist with a love for science, William does not believe in demons and takes Dantalion as a con artist. But the truth of the matter is: as a descendant of Solomon, and the “Elector,” William is the person that must select a substitute ruler to take Lucifer’s throne. His fate will forever change as he is now entwined and inseparable from the underworld which he must manage and nominate an infernal substitute king.
